Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Hi, Iím looking at the current 13% dividend for PKI. What is the likelihood of a cut? Their longer term guidance sounds optimistic in this environment. You mentioned M&A in your reply to Gregory. Have you any potential candidates in mind who would be interested? ATD is obvious but would the government approve? Anyone else? Thanks! Heather

Q: Good Morning
I woud appreciate it if you could provide me with Credit Ratings for the following companies as I have been unable to find the information. Maybe your Bloomberg will help me.
EIF, NWC, TPZ, FRU, PKI.
Do you consider the credit Rating to be a very important metric by which one can judge the safety of a company and of it's dividend?
Thank you............ Paul W. K.

Q: Hi! Doing some cleaning up and wondering if these are buy, sell, or hold. In reference to Shane's comments I also agree that it wasn't too long ago that so many advisors were recommending growth stocks at lofty prices. Having always been a more of a value investor I dipped my toes, but am feeling like I'd be too scared to ever enter any kind of a growth stock again. I know if interest rates peak you feel these can do well again but only time will tell and many investors have lost lots of money on the high growth names like in Cathy Wood's funds. Happy to hold any of these names if there could ever be a turn around. Thank you!

Q: Can you provide a 'buy' list for a person wanting to deploy $200,000 (inside RRSP) with the goal of creating 5% or more sustained cash flow - as well as growing the original capital to keep up with inflatiion? We do not have company pensions - this would serve to supplement our government pensions.
Thinking, 20 stocks across all sectors @ $10,000 each (or 5%)
Also could you include 10 growth stocks (inside TFSA) for a total of $250,000 - gotta have some fun ;)
Many Thanks
Jan

Q: Hi 5i

I have too many stocks and am starting to pare back. I have these five stocks in Energy. Which two would you sell? To which stock(s )would you add the cash from the sale.

Thanks for the excellent advice. It is so comforting to have 5i to ask questions of. It is hard to be objective sometimes when it is your own portfolio.

Q: Ignoring company size and sector diversification, can you please rank these stocks on a best to worst risk / reward basis for long term hold. I own them all in various accounts with a half position or less so my plan would be to let some go and increase position in others with better potential. Any of them you consider good buy at the moment? Thank you!
